The theme of this Institute is “Digital Humanities and the Environment.” From the natural environment to pedagogical environments, this year’s institute will meditate on DH’s impact with its surroundings. What are important considerations for ensuring DH work minimizes harm to the environment? How can we teach practitioners to consider the environmental impact of their DH work? How is industry incorporating the environment into DH products and solutions?
